New Linux Version Released!

December 14, 2022 in News

We are excited to announce the release of the Linux version of Remote Mouse! We have spent many hours re-engineering the application to make it better than ever before.

It is currently compatible with Ubuntu 18-22, and we are working hard to bring support for more devices such as Steam Deck in the near future.

We have added a variety of new features, including an improved user interface, faster performance, and better compatibility with a wide range of devices. We are confident that you will love the new version of Remote Mouse.

We value your feedback and would love to hear your thoughts on the new version of Remote Mouse. So please, let us know what you think!

Wi-Fi or Bluetooth?

July 17, 2021 in News

Remote Mouse now supports connecting computers via Bluetooth. Under most circumstances, we still recommend using Wifi connection first. Because Wifi generally has better stability, hardware compatibility and signal coverage. When there is no available Wifi, or you are experiencing latency caused by poor signals, you can try Bluetooth connection instead, as it works better than Wifi connection under such circumstances.

There are also certain hardware requirements for computers to connect with Bluetooth.

  • For Windows, Bluetooth connection is supported only on Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703) or newer. Also, the PC must have Bluetooth built-in. If your PC uses external Bluetooth (a USB Bluetooth dongle), only the model BT851 by Laird supports Bluetooth connection.
  • For Mac, except for some old models, Mac computers support Bluetooth connection perfectly.

To use the latest Advanced Connectivity feature, please make sure that both the desktop and the mobile versions of Remote Mouse are up to date.

Specialty Control Panels

To control your computer with a virtual remote control is not as convenient as using a mouse and a keyboard with both hands. The purpose of designing the specialty panels is to help perform certain actions faster on the small screens, such as shut down your computer with one click.

The panel control bar is designed to be slidable, so the size of each icon can better match the size of your fingertips. Also, more room for adding new panels in the future.

In our latest version, you can rearrange the specialty panels and set up your preferred interface.

Keyboard Shortcuts

In additional to the alphabetical keyboard, Remote Mouse also provides a shortcut bar and a numeric-function keypad. We made some Gifs below to make things straightforward.

The Shortcut Bar

The Shortcut Bar can be displayed and used simultaneously with other keyboards and specialty panels, and will display corresponding keys depending on whether the connected computer is a PC or a Mac.

The three keys on the right are quick controls. The four keys on the left are modifiers that can be used along with either the English keyboard or the numeric-function keypad to send shortcuts.

Shortcuts

Due to the limited screen size, each key in a shortcut key combination needs to be entered one by one, which is different from using a physical keyboard.

Ctrl-Z – tap Ctrl first, then Z
